Last Week Texas Tech won the final game of its non-conference schedule with a 70-53 victory over Nevada. Mario Layne led the Raiders with 15 points and a career-high 10 rebounds, while Brodney Kennard added a career-high 11 boards. Texas Tech outrebounded Nevada by a 45-30 margin and limited it to just .317 shooting in the game. The Raiders opened Big 12 play and 1999 with its biggest conference win in 23 years with a 93-62 victory over Baylor in the Coliseum. Cliff Owens led the team with a game-high 21 points, while guard Stan Bonewitz added 19 points and a team-high seven rebounds. Bonewitz, the Big 12's leading three-point shooter, connected on five-of-six from behind the three-point arc. Texas Tech held Baylor to just .313 from the field and .190 from the three-point line, while shooting .643 from the three-point arc. Texas Tech has won three-straight Big 12 openers.

Head Coach James Dickey Texas Tech men's basketball coach James Dickey is in his eighth season guiding the Red Raiders on the hardwood. A 1976 graduate of Central Arkansas, he has posted a 141-77 record, a winning percentage of .647. Dickey was named Tech's head coach on April 10, 1991 after serving one year for the Red Raiders as an assistant under longtime coach Gerald Myers. Over the last four-plus seasons, Tech is 91-40 for a .695 winning mark. Dickey has earned district coach of the year honors four times and has been conference coach of the year on three occasions. He has guided Tech to two NCAA Tournaments, including the '96 Sweet 16. Before his arrival at Tech as an assistant coach in 1990-91, Dickey previously worked at Kentucky (1986-89) and Arkansas (1982-85) as an assistant under Eddie Sutton.

About Oklahoma Oklahoma is 10-3 on the season following a 56-52 win in its Big 12 opener against Iowa State Saturday in Ames. Eduardo Najera scored a team-high 22 points, while Ryan Humphrey grabbed 13 boards in the win. Najera leads the Sooners in scoring and rebounding with 16.1 and 7.7 per game averages. He has led OU in scoring in five games this season. Humphrey is second on the team in both categories with averages of 13.4 and 7.4. The Sooners opened the season winning seven of their first eight games, including a win by forfeit against American University-Puerto Rico. A 30-point win over Arkansas highlighted the non-conference schedule.

The Series Texas Tech and Oklahoma have met 21 times since the first meeting in 1944. The Sooners own a 11-10 series advantage and a 7-4 edge in Norman. Since the formation of the Big 12, the series is tied at 2-2 The Red Raiders own a 2-0 advantage in Norman and have lost two at home. Texas Tech has won four-straight in Norman, dating back to 1971. James Dickey is 3-2 against Oklahoma as a head coach and is 3-0 in Norman.

Familiar Faces For the second-straight game, a player on the opposing bench will have a few former teammates on the Red Raider sideline. Oklahoma guard Michael Johnson joined Texas Tech guard Rayford Young and coach James Dickey on the Big 12 All-Star Team that travelled throughout Europe last summer.

Big 12 Bombers Texas Tech leads the big 12 in three-point percentage, connecting on 84-of-199 attempts for .422 percent on the season. Individually, Stan Bonewitz leads the league in three-point percentage, connecting on 37-of-76 treys for .487 percent. He is also fourth in the Big 12 in three-pointers made per game with 2.64. Texas Tech's 77.8 points per game is second-best in the Big 12 and its .490 shooting is tops in the league.

Veterans Carrying the Load Texas Tech's three upperclassmen this season are carrying the load for the Raiders. The trio of senior Stan Bonewitz and juniors Cliff Owens and Rayford Young have accounted for 46.9 percent of the team's 77.8 points and 38.1 percent of the team's 40.5 rebounds per game this season. Owens, Young and Bonewitz are each averaging over 31 minutes of playing time per game and are the only Red Raiders averaging double figures in scoring.

Hot-Shooting Raiders The Raiders have regained their hot hand in the last two games, leading the Big 12 with a .542 shooting percentage from the field. The five of the six games the Red Raiders shot less than .500 were all losses. Texas Tech shot over .500 in six of the first nine games of the season, including the first three before falling short at Southwestern La. The streak of three-straight games over .500 to start the season marked the first three-game streak since the George Washington, USL and Southwest Missouri St. games last season. Texas Tech has not surpassed .500 shooting in four-straight games since the 1995-96 season when it accomplished the feat against Montana State, East Tennessee State, TCU and Texas A&M.

Raiders Will Take Charity The Raiders have made almost as many free throws (257) as its opponents have attempted this season (297) and are averaging 18.4 made free throws per game. The Red Raiders have made and attempted more free throws than any Big 12 team this season.

On the Tube With the addition of four appearances on FOX Sports Southwest, the Texas Tech men's basketball team will play 12 televised games this season. The Red Raiders will play four games on Fox Sports Southwest. Tech will play one national televised game on ESPN Feb. 20 against Nebraska at 8:30 p.m. Tech will appear seven times on ESPN Regional via the Big 12 television package.

Owens Strong Inside Sophomore forward Cliff Owens (Santa Fe, Texas) is the Big 12's co-leader in defensive rebounds with an average of 6.64 per game. His 8.7 total average is the league's fifth-best. His .563 shooting percentage is second-best in the big 12. He has led the team in rebounding in eight games this season. His 23 points in the season-opener against UTSA was a career-high and his 18 rebounds against Pepperdine was a season-high. He has four double-doubles this season.

Young Clutch Performer Point guard Rayford Young returned to the lineup against Baylor and scored four points and passed out five assists in 21 minutes off the bench. He tied a career-high with 28 points against SMU and equalled that mark with 28 against Stephen F. Austin. He also tied a school record, shooting 10-for-10 from the free throw line against SFA and has gone 21-of-22 from behind the charity stripe in the last four games. Young made eight-straight free throws in the last :54 of the game to seal the victory against SMU and has a current streak of 20-straight made from the charity stripe.

Young under Ray-Ted Young, a starter in all 27 games last season, was named to the All-Underrated squad, selected by a panel of sports writers who regularly cover the Big 12. The 5-11 Pampa, Texas, junior joined Baylor's Patrick Hunter, Texas A&M's Shanne Jones, Oklahoma State's Adrian Peterson and Kansas' Ryan Robertson. He is Texas Tech's top returning scorer (15.4) and led the club last season in assists (116) and steals (46). Young averaged 3.7 rebounds, grabbed three or more boards in 21 games and was third on the team with 11 blocks.

Just Call Him "Bomb-A-Witz" Stan Bonewitz, who hit a team-high 84 three-pointers last season, has made at least three treys in the last 26 of 37 games. He now ranks third all-time at Tech with 212 career 3's. Bonewitz tied the single-game school mark of seven last season against Texas A&M on Feb. 21 in College Station. Last year, Bonewitz ranked second in the Big 12 with a 41.8 three-point percentage and 3.1 3's a game. He led the Big 12 in three-point percentage as a sophomore with a 46.3 mark.

Home Cooking This season, Texas Tech is 7-1 within the historic confines of Lubbock Municipal Coliseum. In the season-opener against Texas-San Antonio Texas Tech broke a three-game home losing streak with its 87-78 win at the Lubbock Municipal Coliseum. The Red Raiders dropped their last three home games of 1997-98 to Texas, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. The three-game losing streak was Tech's first at home since early in the 1993-94 season. The three-game skid was also Tech's first in conference action since the 1990-91 campaign. Texas Tech has won 58 of its last 67 games in Lubbock Municipal Coliseum for an .866 winning percentage. From 1993-94 (against Texas A&M) until the Colorado game in 1996-97, Texas Tech won a school-record 35 consecutive games at home. All-time, Texas Tech is 393-153 in the "Bubble." The Red Raiders own a 75-21 mark under James Dickey at home for a .781 winning percentage.

Youth Movement The Red Raiders started the same five players in each of the first eight games of the season before Rayford Young's injury prior to the UT-Pan American game. The lineup of Young and Stan Bonewitz and the guards, Mario Layne and Cliff Owens at the forwards and Johnny Phillips at center accounts for a large percentage of the team's scoring. Texas Tech utilized four different starting combinations last season, any of which would be among the youngest quintet in James Dickey's seven seasons as head coach. For the first time since the 1993-94 season, Texas Tech started only two upperclassmen. The Red Raiders have started at least two seniors for the majority of the season in all but three of James Dickey's previous seven years as head coach, 1992-93, 1993-94 and 1997-98.

Rookie Help A total of nine true freshmen have started at least one game for Texas Tech during head coach James Dickey's seven previous years. Johnny Phillips started the last 15 games of 1997-98 - the most by a true freshman since Jason Sasser started 19 in 1992-93. Lance Hughes also started 19 during his freshman year in 1991-92.

YOUNG FROM THE LINE Young's excellent free throw shooting this season is no fluke. Shooting .911 this season, he tied for second behind teammate Cory Carr in the Big 12 last season in free throw percentage with an 84.3 clip. Twice last season he provided late-game heroics from the stripe to help Tech win. He made four free throws in the final 10 seconds against Kansas State, each time going to the line with Tech up one point. Young sank two free throws - his first attempts of the game - with four seconds remaining to send the game at Nevada into overtime. He made all eight of his free throw attempts at Nevada, six in the overtime period.

Stan the Rebounder Known for his long-range shooting and uncanny passing ability, Stan Bonewitz added another facet to his game the last two seasons - rebounding. And, with his 10-rebound effort at USL and nine-board efforts against UTPA, he is the team's second-leading rebounder. The San Antonio junior came into the year with a career rebounding average of 2.1. He doubled that mark last year with a 4.9 average and led the team on the boards five games. He helped his average in the Big 12 Tournament against Texas with 10 boards for his first career double-double in the points and rebounds variety. Twice against Iowa State and Prairie View A&M, Bonewitz grabbed a career-high 11 rebounds. For the year, Bonewitz had five or more rebounds in 15 games.

Banks Makes Most of Opportunity Junior transfer Jevon Banks replaced injured starter Rayford Young against Texas-Pan American and responded with career-highs for points (9), assists (4), steals (4), three-points (2) and minutes played (27). He has started five of the last six games and set a career high for points (13 vs. Weber State) and assists (5 vs. Tulsa) in the Pearl Harbor Classic.

Break Out Game for Layne Against SMU Junior transfer Mario Layne has been an instrumental player for the Red Raiders this season. He has scored in double figures in three of the last five games for Texas Tech and has set eight career highs during that time. Layne enjoyed a "break-out" game against SMU, scoring a career-high 15 points and making several trademark acrobatic moves to the basket. One of the best leapers in the Big 12 Conference, Layne went 7-for-10 from the field, grabbed five rebounds and dished out five assists against the Ponies. Perhaps more importantly, he was instrumental in limiting SMU's top scorer, Jeryl Sasser, to an 8-for-28 shooting night.
